Results are presented for the driving of 48-in.-diameter open-ended piles in heavily overconsolidated clay for a fixed offshore platform located about 28 miles off the northeast coast of Trinidad. A comparison of observed and predicted blow counts, measured maximum driving stresses, the energy transmitted to the pile, and the soil resistance to driving for different damping factors are presented. The results of signal matching analyses also are presented.
